I also agree - there are lots of 303-clones out there as ptrance already stated (my favourite is without doubt Audiorealism Bassline, here above), and you should also be able to use Rebirth (which is free nowadays) using Rewire with the latest Renoise beta.
Dunno …to talk to it ,him,her ,them …?
No serious …what’s the difference between renoise rendering some tracks an automatically disable instruments=FREEZE
Or render to selection and manually disable effects etc …Same to me …just a few more mouseclicks …
Every major sequencer had the freeze function long before it was named freeze …al you had to do was assign a template keycommand to some generic functions …( audio mixdown ; and import back into project )…then eventually emagic logic simplified this with just one mouseclick …the mightysnowflake icon …
Anyways …I wouldn’t realy care if it was there or not ,
Wildly off topic but this question freaks me out. We need freeze because it’s more convenient, and is a good foundation for streaming audio tracks. A clear separation between a track that is “finished” (say recorded tracks) and a track that is still being modified, along with CPU gains for preprocessed effects, there’s literally no reason we would NOT need freeze.
If you are happy with rendering a track to sample or to wav, and reimporting the wav, doubling the track and muting the original, and the bullshit logistics that entails, then you are a) a villain, and happy with a solution that provides no foundation for further features.
